Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal visited Mingus Union High School in Cottonwood for a question-and-answer town hall on the evening of March 4, the second of two such gatherings in Yavapai County.Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal visited Cottonwood on March 4 to talk about the state of education in Arizona. Set up as a town hall, the second of two Q&As took place in Mingus Union High School’s cafeteria, following Monday’s Prescott meeting. The cafeteria was filled with teachers, administrators, parents and even students, who were commended for giving up a night and participating in the discussion.

Huppenthal is currently touring to discuss education issues with parents, educators and community members on the heels of recent controversy stemming from his endorsement of empowerment scholarship accounts in a phone advertisement for the Goldwater Institute, a conservative public policy think tank named for the late U.S. Sen. Barry Goldwater of Arizona.

The issue of the accounts and Huppenthal’s support for them was initially addressed by the superintendent before he took questions.
